Watch Dogs Challenges GTA 5, Says "Two Months Are Enough to Visit Los Santos"

"You just had to figure that one or the other open world game developers would have something to say on the day of Grand Theft Auto 5's release." (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Fun factor, trolling = GTAV. Extreme realism graphics and game play with a huge technical twist = WD.

Both played mostly in the city. But very very far from being alike at all.
Spinal  +   710d ago
Fact: GTA 5 is going to go down as one of the best of the generation.

Watch Dogs most likely won't be considered in that list.

Don't get me wrong watch dogs looks good but not GTA 5 good. Watched many gameplay vids for WD an there's factors like having to do eagle eye thing by hitting a base to unlock an area for hacking. The repetition with that won't go down well.
H0RSE  +   710d ago | Well said
To be fair, GTA also has an established fanbase and 4 previous games in the franchise, whereas WD is a new IP... If it was a case of GTA 5 being under a different title and being a completely new IP as well, I don't doubt the reception of the community would be different.

Personally, I'm not a huge GTA fan. I don't really like playing the "bad guy" in games, like a criminal committing crimes - I more enjoy like playing the hero or the vigilante do-gooder. This is also why I didn't really like Payday. That's not to say that they aren't well made, just not my cup of tea. I imagine I would probably have more fun playing WD.

Fact: Same thing happened to GTAIV and it turned out to be god awful. That game killed the rating system. So many BS 10's.... same thing is happening all over again. Look at it, it's the exact same game play. But with a new map, new players and looks much better! Nice to see it go back to the SA days for sure.

I wont even compare a this Gen game to a Next Gen game. That's not even fair at all. Wait until you see a Next Gen game first before you go around posting opinionated responses. For some of us have already seen them and played them. Besides again, these two games have zero to do with each other. Disagree all you want. If GTAV was so good to you. Then you wouldn't be on here disagreeing. You'd be off playing it.

Again, WD ( Next Gen ) is going to blow you away in visuals and game play. Night and day. It so nice to have seen both, lol. :D

People who enjoy open world games will get both of these. GTA fans especially will be interested in Watch Dogs due to the similarities.

The two can co-exist peacefully.
Rainstorm81  +   710d ago

So you're putting watch dogs on a pedestal before you play it...then say GTA5 is the same as GTA4?

Your credibility is lost GTA5 gameplay will trump WD gameplay....plain and simple fact is WD is a current gen game on next gen consoles.

Besides Rockstar has proven themselves time and time again...even with GTA 4 it wasn't the perfect game...yet its still one of the realest worlds this generation....Ubisoft has a long way to go to be compared to R*s open worlds..but WD does look fun...

Great time for gamers who love open world games...but zblack you act as if people haven't seen Watch Dogs

The gameplay of GTA 5 far superior to GTA 4.

They too the Shooting mechanics from Max Payne 3 which was amazing, the driving mechanics for Midway Club Drive (whatever that games called lol) and the Weapon wheel and exploration of Red Dead.

The game shits on GTA 4 in every single aspect. The story already for me is more interesting than GTA 4 which bored me with the first couple missions.

Personally i think open world games are overrated.

Like they get their own score system or something.

I've played most open world games.

I prefer Infamous.

Powers.story, etc.

I got bored with GTA4 very early and took it back, Maybe GTA5 is awesome. But reviews of GTA4 said the same thing.
spicelicka  +   709d ago
I don't think it's just that. GTA V just has a certain magic that appeals to everyone and it's what GTA is known for. Their approach is always epic and excessive with crazy attention to detail.

Watch dog looks amazingg but it's gonna be counted as a nex-gen title which means it's gonna be critiqued a lot more heavily. But knowing what Ubisoft did with assassin's creed, i have a good feeling it's gonna be an amazing new franchise.
JC_Denton  +   709d ago
All Rockstar Games releases have one key flaw that holds them back from ever being remembered in gaming history as anything more than controversial, "fun to mess around in" open world games: Immaturity. Each game features blatant social commentary that a teenager could've thought up, and the story-lines are cliche retellings of the the same story that defines whatever genre the game is apart of. Red Dead, for example (while a brilliant technical achievement) was heavily reminiscent of my later feelings towards Bioshock Infinite (in that it was a pseudo intellectual, incredibly easy game (yes, even on the hardest difficulty) designed for mainstream teenage audiences and video game journalists).

I have tons of fun playing these games when they first come out, but once the credits roll, I expend maybe a minute of thought thinking about the game I experienced, shrug, and play something else. I also find the gimmicks and "one time, fun time" events that are always sprinkled throughout their games to get boring incredibly fast, and that the always easy gameplay gets stale and repetitive fast.

(not saying Watchdogs will be any better, by the way)

Why even compare two games that have different baselines?

If anything, compare Watch Dogs with Assassins Creed 4 or The Division which both will be available on PS4 and also have vast open worlds. AC4 even features stealth gameplay like some aspects of Watch Dogs.

harrisk954  +   709d ago
I'm not defending either game. I just got my copy of GTA V and have pre-ordered WD for the PS4. However, it simply defies LOGIC to say that a game that is still 2 months away from release is better or worse than another game. It is silly. WD will sell a lot of units for sure and I am going to assume that it gets great reviews, but who the heck knows at this point? There is NO WAY you can make this statement based upon what a developer/publisher releases to the gaming media. You need to play the game yourself and see how it is. We've seen too many games that are hyped prior to release fall flat (Aliens:CM, anyone?)

GTAV isn't radically new or innovative, it isn't outside or beyond established procedure or principles. How is it revolutionary then?

'outside or beyond established procedure'

Having three characters with intelligently structured story and gameplay which then effects the mission structure as a result is beyond the established procedure.

I like the way all the people who couldn't get their hands on GTA5 are just acting bitter.

@dj3boud: So words are opinion based now?

@LucasEVille: That's cool. Cheers.

@Pintheshadows: No, no it's not. Are you actually trying to say you've never heard of any game that had more than 1 main character that affects the main story? Because I immediately had one game spring to mind after you made this comment. Also, who's bitter? What I find funny is that you are all indirectly admitting (except for LucasEVille who was direct about it) that you are hyping GTA V to be the greatest thing to ever happen to gaming. This tells me that you either have low standards, or haven't been gaming long. How was me asking a question, and then replying to an incorrect word use bitter?

DragonKnight  +   709d ago
@warczar: That's because I wasn't the one that claimed a game was revolutionary. I think the truly revolutionary games have already happened. That's not to say that they can't happen again, but nothing about GTA V is so totally new and different that it's a revolution in gaming. It doesn't have the largest open world, the gameplay mechanics are standard GTA fare, there have been other games that have had multiple main protagonists whose personal stories affected the overall story.

I mean, do you honestly think that GTA V stands up there with games like Wolfenstein 3D which practically put first person shooters on the map by itself? Is it as innovative as Donkey Kong Country was when it released? Does it change gaming the way the very first online console game ever released did? Or what about the very first 3D game on consoles?

When history looks back at GTA V, do you honestly think people will say "this changed gaming in ____ ways" or will they say "this was the pinnacle of the Grand Theft Auto series at the time?"

What part of GTA V do you think will change the direction of how games are made in the future? GTA WAS a revolutionary series, which explains the clones it had last generation and coming into this generation, but what does GTA V do that is so radically new and different?

When I think of revolutionary games, I think of Final Fantasy VII that brought global appeal for the JRPG genre. I think of the aforementioned Wolfenstein 3D. I think of Halo CE, which really brought competitive FPS games to consoles in a huge way. I think of GTA 3 SA which is the pinnacle of the GTA series and hammered home how impressive an open world console game can be.

Do you honestly think that GTA V can stand with those games that did so much for gaming? Do you honestly think that it can be compared as being as revolutionary as that?

I never once said that GTA V was a bad game, but of course if you don't immediately pledge your undying love and soul to a GTA game then you're a hater. I don't care if people love or hate GTA V. I'm saying that it's not a revolutionary game, it's not the greatest thing to happen to gaming, and people that create this kind of hype are a huge problem in the gaming industry because it affects future titles and the expectations that are placed on those titles. This in turn drives up production and marketing costs and creates nothing but a mess of problems.

History backs that up folks.

Best selling PS4 Bundle made is WD. As if playing GTA is any different then all the other GTA games? I think we both know that answer.

Lukas are you that clueless? Go look at AC games.... different times and different Assassins in completely different worlds. You have zero credibility to me now. I was playing GTA when people had no clue about it. I'm more then aware. Time to take the fanboy game glasses off and see it for what it really is. Heck stay with the game for all I care...

AC4 looks like the rest...but with nicer visuals and a different setting.

My concern is that GTA V is reaping much more praise from reviewers than it diserves.

From 37 critics the metascore is 98 but from 391 user reviews the score is 7.9. The exact same results as those for for GTA IV! It got 98 from 86 critics and 7.9 from 2440 users!

I bought into the hype for GTA IV and was disappointed but luckily that won't happen this time.
DARK WITNESS  +   709d ago
that is your opinion... personally i think the reviewers are totally justified in giving this game the high scores it's been getting.

the real problem is that they give every other game under the sun the same high score which then starts to make GTA look like it's "just another AAA" like the rest of the trash.

The game is pure epic. not everyone will agree because we all like different things in terms of story, characters etc... but what R* have just from a technical standpoint on this dying hardware is nothing short of pure magic. just for that alone i think the game is more deserving of a 10/10 then any other game i can think of... then add to that the missions are actually fun, the script is brilliant, the gun fights etc are fantastic, the care models are such a huge step up from so many open world games with cars .. i could go on.

there are some games that get lots of high scores from everyone and you just have to wonder why? GTA5 is not one of those games! it is very clear after playing all day today why it's got the scores it has, because it really is that good ! well at least for most of us anyway...

True, but that was gta4, we are talking about gta5 which is a far better game then gta 4 anyway.

If gta4 was over hyped, even taking that into consideration it was still an easy 8 out of 10 compared to other games. if we then look at how much better gta5 is compared to 4 both from a technical point of view but also in terms of gameplay, story, fun factor... then gta5 still comes up as an easy 9 if not 10.

For what I have seen Watch Dogs is about:

3. Overhearing a conversation then chasing a bad person
4. Someone invading your game, you find them then follow them into their game

These are the only thing you ever hear about. Isn't there anything else to do?? I am hoping there is because I really like the idea but I am getting bored with it before I get it.

No other GTA or even RDR has hooked me this fast after only playing a few hours. GTA 5 is amazing. Just being able to switch characters at anytime is great. Watch Dogs to me will be nothing more that a super version of Sleeping Dogs IMO, which sleeping dogs was fun, but Watch Dogs really won't come close to GTA 5.

Everything about GTA 5 is fresh and amazing. Its set a new standard for sandbox/open world games. I would have never thought being able to switch between characters would make such an impact. After playing GTA 5, People will get bored playing through Watch Dogs with one storyline with one character, playing through the story with one persons perspective like Watch Dogs will be.

People are taking this jab too seriously. Its not even like Watch_Dogs are saying "dont buy GTAV", theyre just saying their game is coming out 2 months after, which i think is a good time frame.

As to people bashing one or the other, I dont see the point. Apples and Oranges here, both games offering two different and unique takes on the open world genre.

watch dogs is too polite, while gta is about american real life - drugs, gangsters, hip-hop and guns.

If GTA is what your idea of real life is then you should REALLY play video games less often and go outside. Because GTA is nothing like real life.

I used to love GTA but I have more interest in Watchdogs. Plus WatchDogs is in Chicago I love Chicago. Time for a new game to shine. I'm getting GTA V no doubt but I'm afraid I won't play it much just the online part of it. ^~^

Im sorry but even though watch dogs looks to be pretty unique it doesnt stand a snowballs chance in hell with gta 5. Those who are bashing gta 5 havent played it cause for me it murders anything released in gaming thus far. Yes better than re4, mgs3, and last of us. Gameplay is moreso like red dead so you asshats who are saying its like IV go get the game from redbox and shutup. Unless you are little kids who dont have debit cards that is... lol. Btw i hated every other gta

More excited about watchdogs then GTA V at moment. Sorry folks. It's just that I've started playing GTA V and quickly realised "it's GTA without the pop ups. Nice." haven't done anything new yet but obviously I've just started, I'll give it time.
